Paediatric (babies & children) Chiropractic
Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
A mums body goes through a marathon of changes in pregnancy, from before conception all the way to after baby is born. As your body changes to accommodate baby’s growth and development your hormones, gait, centre of gravity, and overall movement are all constantly changing.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy focuses on keeping mums body balanced and aligned. Which has been shown to support postural changes, keep pelvis aligned for optimal birthing, and helps to reduce the potential for pregnancy pain.
Seeing a Chiropractor during pregnancy is not only focused on treating pain, but the overall health of mum and baby. You can expect hands on therapy, exercise and nutritional advise to name a few.
Common conditions Chiropractic can help with during pregnancy are:
Rib pain, Pelvic girdle pain, Sciatic pain, Neuralgia, Neck pain, Headaches,
Post-Partum Chiropractic Care is also important for mum, as your body adapts to life after giving birth and the new biomechanical changes associated with feeding and carrying baby.
Spinal and Extremity adjustments have been shown to improved performance in training and competing. Improvement of biomechanics and optimum joint range of movement makes reaching those PB’s a little less challenging.
